Reviews

“Most travelers through the Great Basin see only the great American Desert. Luckily, there are people like Bill Fiero who can explain this landscape with knowledge and affection. He examines the geologic history of the Basin in an easy and instructive manner. Intended for the general reader, this well-illustrated work mixes basic principles with the latest discoveries in Basin geology.” - Library Journal

“The introduction to geologic concepts that precedes the geologic history will make this book especially useful to nongeologists. . . . Beautiful color and black-and-white photos together with clear geologic diagrams compose nearly half of the book. The reader learns not only the history of the rocks but something of why, for twenty years, this landscape has excited Bill Fiero, both as a geologist and as a teacher.” - Choice

“I recommend Geology of the Great Basin to both the casual and interested readers of natural history, and to the professional earth scientist. Bill Fiero’s writing style and organization, along with the excellent photographs and sketches, make this book an exciting introduction to the earth sciences for the casual reader. For the avid reader of natural history, the beauty of this book is found in the clarity and the wealth of information presented by Fiero.” - A. W. Magee, Progress in Physical Geology

""For anyone curious of the science of the environment of the west, Geology of the Great Basin is a top pick that should not be ignored."" - The Midwest Book Review
